Police make arrest after crash in Adelaide, South Australia

A man has been arrested following a crash in Adelaide last night.

Police will allege that about 9.45pm on Saturday 11 April, a patrol attempted to stop a Volkswagen sedan on Maxwell Avenue, Edwardstown after checks revealed the car had incorrect number plates.

The sedan sped off, and travelled northbound on Marion Road. It was not pursued by patrols, who requested the police helicopter (PolAir) to monitor the car’s whereabouts.

The Volkswagen was tracked to the CBD, and the PolAir crew was able to direct patrols to use road spikes on Waymouth Street.

The sedan was successfully spiked twice, and then collided with a Mazda sedan at the intersection of Waymouth Street and West Terrace.

The driver of the Mazda, a woman in her 20s, suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Volkswagen, a 26-year-old Ingle Farm man was arrested and charged with numerous offences including driving in a dangerous manner, refusing to comply with a breath test and driving with unassigned number plates. He has been refused bail and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

His passenger, a 26-year-old Enfield man was also taken to the RAH with leg injuries, which are not considered life-threatening.
